Hi I'm Cari

I am a born and raised Texan who converted while studying at Texas A&M. I am Mormon.

About Me

I am a born and raised Texan, converted to the gospel in 2008 while studying at Texas A&M University. I was sealed for all time and eternity to my sweetheart in the Houston, Texas temple in 2012 and have been enjoying life with my husband and our Great Dane, Charlie. I love watching movies, crafting, and spending time with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have received the spiritual witness from the Holy Ghost that this is the true church. I converted while I was away at college, after several months of investigating. I know 100% that my decision to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the best choice I will ever make in my life, but that doesn't mean it came without trials. My family, not being members, were not fond of the idea of me joining the church to say the least. Many attempts were made by family members and life long friends to persuade me from being baptized. That was the hardest, trying to build enough strength from within myself to do what no one I loved wanted me to do, even though I knew it would benefit not only myself but also my family, whether they be current relatives, ancestors or future generations. I finally made that decision and on June 7, 2008, at 3:45 PM, I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was blessed enough to have my parents make it to the baptism as well as my closest friends. While I was nervous up until the moment I was baptized in that water, that feeling of coming up out of the water made all the trials I had been facing seem like little pebbles instead of unconquerable mountains. I now had the true gospel in my life and nothing will take that away.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making choices that would be pleasing to my Heavenly Father. By doing so it allows me to be in a place that harbors the spirit of the Holy Ghost. I try to read my scriptures often, but some days I may only read one verse. No matter how much I do read it never fails in giving me the spiritual strength to get me through the day and teaches me lessons in which I can draw back on when I am in similar situations. I amazed by the continual testimony builders I receive when I am serving the Lord and his people.
